Amy our dog walker in east rock and spring glen

Amy

Owner & Dog Walker

Hi! My name is Amy and I’ve been called a “Dog Enthusiast” ever since I can remember. I think that’s the nice way of saying “Dog Nut”.

I grew up in Framingham, Massachusetts where my dog obsession began at six-years- old when my parents finally gave in to the relentless pleads of my sister and I for a family dog. Mackie, a Wheaton terrier, was my best friend growing up and we did everything together. When I graduated high school and left him behind to study Psychology at Quinnipiac University, I was absolutely miserable! Luckily, I was only an hour and a half away from home and I could visit on weekends if I needed my doggie fix. I was so thankful to get that time with him, because the winter break of my senior year, Mackie passed away.

Mike our Overnight Pet Sitter in New Haven

Mike

Manager & Dog Walker/Pet Sitter

Hello!! My name is Mike, and I’m positively effervescing with love for dogs of all shapes, sizes, colors, and temperaments! Being crazy for dogs is what led me here to YLD, but that journey started a long time ago when I was a kid growing up in Naugatuck.

My childhood dog was a German Shepherd named Sheba, and this sweet lady was a major lover with an affinity for sunbathing and belly rubs. She also created a soft spot in my heart for big dogs that has stayed with me to this day. We had many Lassie-esque adventures together, and while she left me with an incurable fondness for all four-legged friends, it wasn’t until many years later that I fully understood the pure and complete love that we as humans can experience in our relationships with our canine counterparts.
